Has Autumn arrived in your neck of the woods yet?
It certainly has here. Hubs saw geese flying south in the middle of August!
(I won't talk about the minor hissy fit I threw when he told me)
The unmistakable turn took place on August 31st. The day before was hot, hot, hot and the next day the temps dropped to 2 C.! Brrr!
So in order to bring the fall feeling inside, I started a tiny bit of decorating...
Remember my Autumn Inspiration post? In searching Pinterest for ideas, I came across so many adorable fabric pumpkin ideas, that I just had to try one out for myself. Couldn't help myself!
I was supposed to be resting in bed and getting over that nasty cold, but instead I plunked myself down on the floor of the craft/sewing/storage room and threw this little cutie together.
Sitting on the floor is still technically "resting"...right?
I found this tutorial and used it as a basic guideline. I had just enough left over fabric from my ruffle pillow to put it together, and used a bit of jute twine and hot glue to form a "stem".
People...it doesn't get any easier than this. Seriously.
On my next trip to Michaels, I bought a stem of velvety leaves and some berries, then pulled a few off and glued them around the twine.
I love how they pull it all together!
It looks all nice and comfy nestled in an old wooden crate from my grandparents...
What have you planned for your fall decor? Have you started crafting already?
I have a few more ideas whirling around in my head and I'm looking forward to sharing them with you soon!
